Vaughan, Jeanette G.
This report contains digests of 80 court decisions with legal issues of particular interest to teachers. The material in the compilation comes from judicial decisions published during the 1969 calendar year in the National Reporter System. All but one of the cases are of a civil nature, the exception being an Illinois criminal case in which a teacher was accused of striking a student. The case digests are arranged under (1) eligibility and certification, (2) salaries, (3) contracts, (4) tenure, (5) school desegregation, (6) collective negotiation, (7) loyalty, (8) liability for pupil injury, (9) retirement, and (10) miscellaneous. The most important issues in terms of number of cases were teacher tenure, collective negotiations, and eligibility and certification. A related document is ED 056 405. (Author/JF)
